December is the month that keeps on giving. Kind of appropriate, right? You have so many great choices to settle in with this weekend on Netflix.

It’s the beginning of the holidays. Take this opportunity to look at your list, check it twice, and wrap presents while watching Netflix. I am currently watching a holiday title with my father. I highly recommend it. Especially if you enjoy reciting the lines before someone else can.

Below are my picks for the week. I have seen them all and would personally recommend them.

For your convenience, a full list of the titles added this week is at the end of this article. To keep up with new additions be sure to follow our What’s New page, updated daily.


‘Happy!’ is new this week on Netflix.

Dumplin’ Netflix Original

This heartwarming movie revolves around a girl named Wlllowdean and Dolly Parton. Born to a beauty pageant mother but raised by her aunt, Willowdean was raised early to listen to the beat of another drummer. But as the plus-size, teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, she gets pushed too far and signs up for her mom’s pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town. I loved this movie and believe you will, too.

Nailed It! Holiday! Netflix Original

Your favorite failure show is back and it has a theme. Hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres, this holiday-themed competition sees home bakers with a terrible track record take a shot at recreating edible holiday masterpieces for a $10,000 prize. It’s part competition, part hot mess.

Dogs of Berlin Netflix Original

Two contrasting Berlin police detectives become a team against their will. Forced into a territorial battle with the Berlin underworld, they are confronted their own human weaknesses and criminal activities and into a final decision on which side of the law they’re actually on.
